Transponder 9-24 showing 0 on 103(ca), ok for 99 and 101
Everything was working fine until recently I kept getting "searching for setallite..." on some channels. Most of them HD. The dish I have is Slimline 5 SWM5 with HD22 PVR. I then lokked up all the channels that do not work and they seem to impy that they are coming from 103ca. When I do a signal strength test I get the strength in 80's for all the transponder in 99 and 101 and 0 for 103 ca and 103 cb. I am trying to detemine what could be worng and how to fix this situation. NFL is starting and one of the channel used to work but not working i NFL (212). Your help would be much appreciated.
You didn't say exactly but the "80's" is kinda low unless it's the upper 80's.
I just checked mine (slimline5 & 6 HD/DVRs) and I'm getting 95-98 on 103ca for all transponders. I'm getting 95-100 on the 99 & 101. I would guess it's dish alignment. It's pretty tight for HD sats as the the wave length is narrower so it has to be more precise. It's also adjusted on 3 axis instead of 2 for the HD dishes. -- Certified Jenius!
